Sorry if this has been covered before...Do 15" OEM wheels from an e30 M3 fit a '73. Does anyone have a photo of what the stance looks like?
Thanks,
Charles

No, if they are 4 x 100 bolt pattern with an offset of ET30, they'd work on a '73 '02 with a 3mm front spacer. 5 & 6 series wheels with 5 x 100 bolt pattern will fit an E9. Depends on width and offset, Front up to ET22, Rear up to ET24. For staggered Alpinas ET 11 front, ET24 Rear.

Andrew, e30 m3 uses 5 x 120 pattern.

Charles - good to see you today. as i remember, the offset is et-22 and the wheels are 15 x7. its going to be close. the wheel diameter is 1" bigger on the coupe than the m3 (if i remember correctly - the mind is a little cloudy thanks to the nice red wine, read empty bottle).

cheers

Are they the stock M3 15" BBS style cross-spoke rims (5 lugs). All E30's with the exception of the M3's were fitted with 4 lug wheels. Believe these rims will work, not sure of the offset though. Not too much of a lip with these rims.
